I was recently given the honor of capturing a styled shoot for the Bride Link at Whitestone Country Inn. To say I was thrilled was an understatement. I absolutely love Whitestone! Having been there for a bridal session , I knew how peaceful and serene it is. There are few places I’ve been in this world that give me the peaceful feeling I get when I’m on the coast. Whitestone Country Inn is definitely one of those few places.

When Heather, owner of The Bride Link in Knoxville asked me to do the shoot and was looking for a model, I immediately thought of Morgan. Capturing her senior portraits months prior, I had realized what a delight she was to work with. She is also incredibly photogenic. I immediately reached out to Morgan. Thankfully she said yes!

Styled Shoot Vendors
Another great experience was working with Megan of Stressless Weddings. She and Heather worked closely weeks in advance, to ensure this shoot was beautiful.
Equally fun to work with were Anna of Loveliest Bridal (you may remember her from our recent interview at her Bridal Boutique in Knoxville), Colleen with Unique Settings and Rentals, Melissa with Melissa Timm Designs, Baltic Studios & Amanda with Southern Sirens. I have loved Amanda’s work since our first encounter. Her amazing hair and makeup styled helped with our Honeymoon Session on Style Me Pretty!
And last but certainly not least, the staff at Whitestone were wonderful and are always easy and fun to work with.

Styled Shoot Day
Everything came together perfectly. The weather was warm with lots of warm sunshine filtering through the trees. All the vendors arrived and gave their best effort, and it truly showed in the images. Amanda quickly got to work on Morgan’s hair and makeup while Heather, Megan and Melissa set up the gazebo. The fresh greens and flowers enhanced the natural beauty around Whitestone. When Morgan walked out in that gorgeous Anna Campbell gown, I knew this shoot would be amazing. And it was! As a result of a lot off hard work, the day few by seamlessly. It was so much fun to work with all these incredible vendors and create beautiful images with their help.
